Johnson, Adam

Adam Johnson, won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 2013 for 'The Orphan Masters Son,' and the National Book Award for Fiction 2015 for his collection of stories "Fortune Smiles"had an ideal upbringing for a writer. His father was a night watchman at the Phoenix Zoo and he would bring young Adam along on his evening rounds.

'My father showed me there was a zoo that average people saw, but at night, with all the keys in hand, he would lift the veil and show me the real zoo,' he said. 'Animals had certain behaviors in their exhibits, I learned, but at night, in their private enclosures, they displayed their true personalities. The zoo taught me there was always a hidden, purer world, and this is the only part of life Im interested in depicting in my work.'
